Before Kyrie Irving became a NBA superstar, he was hanging out with some of his friends at Duke University back in 2010. Being at only 18 years old, he was having fun just like other normal college kids during his college days, dunking and joking with some of them.
Kyrie Irving committed to Duke University on October 22, 2009, and he played for Mike Krzyzewski during the 2010-2011 NCAA college basketball season. Kyrie Irving left Duke in spring 2011 without a college degree, but he promised his father to get his degree within 5 years. Later, Kyrie declared for 2011 NBA Draft and he was selected No.1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kyrie is notably known for his role as "Uncle Drew" in the Pepsi Max commercials. An Uncle Drew movie is set for June 29, 2018, which will be produced by Lionsgate. He also participated in the 2016 Rio Olympics Games as a member of 2016 Team USA basketball team.
Kyrie won his 1st NBA Championship during the recent 2015-2016 NBA season with LeBron James & Kevin Love. Despite the Golden State Warriors was leading the series 3-1, Kyrie helped the Cavaliers to win the next 3 games, and they became the 1st team in Finals history to successfully overcome a 3–1 deficit. Ever since 2011, Kyrie Irving had been playing in the Quicken Loans Arena for the past 6 years, until he came to a decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Boston Celtics back in July 2017.
● Kyrie Irving requested a trade back in July 2017 during a meeting with the Cleveland Cavaliers owner, Dan Gilbert. At the time, Irving said that he wanted to play in a situation in which he could be more of a focal point and that he no longer wanted to play alongside LeBron James, sources said.
On August 22, 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to send Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and Brooklyn Nets's 2018 unprotected first-round pick, the teams announced Tuesday night. This trade gives the Cleveland Cavaliers options and insurance if LeBron James does depart in the future.
Having all of these achievements, it is hard to believe Kyrie Irving is only 24 years old, and he is still improving every year. Back on November 16, 2017, there was a claim by Kyrie Irving himself, saying that the Earth is actually flat.
Kyrie Irving has partnered up with major brands such as Nike, PepsiCo, Foot Locker, Panini, PSD Luxury Men's Boxer Briefs, and Skullcandy. In December 2014, Irving had launched his Nike Kyrie 3 signature shoe collection and since then the sale of his shoes is touching new heights day by day. The launch colorway was sold out in just 3 minutes. In 2016, he got equity stakes in American company Skullcandy. This deal was a part of an endorsement deal between him and Skullcandy. This move of Kyrie looks professionally good because of Skullcandy's global headphone and earbud market expected to be worth more than $17.5 billion by 2022.
